Brussels landmarks go NATO blue for Summit
Local landmarks will be emblazoned in NATO colours on the eve of the NATO Summit in Brussels (on 14 June). The leaders of the Alliance’s 30 countries are meeting at the alliance’s headquarters, to set an ambitious agenda for transatlantic security in a competitive world through their NATO 2030 initiative.
To welcome the leaders, Brussels Town Hall in the UNESCO-listed Grand Place will be illuminated in NATO blue the night of 13 June. The fountain in the middle of the Montgomery roundabout, named after Field Marshal Montgomery NATO’s first Deputy Supreme Allied Commander, will be lit up in NATO-blue from 11 to 15 June. The iconic Manneken Pis statue will don a NATO-branded outfit on 14 June, which NATO will donate to his famous wardrobe. NATO flags will also fly under the Cinquantenaire Arch from 11 to 15 June and at the entrance to the Atomium on 14 June.
